i like the 01 better

yourfavestoner 03-10-2007 08:44 PM

96 and it isn't even close.

Dolfan2788 03-10-2007 08:45 PM

01 has more higher quality gamebreakers but overall it's 96. They have a lot more pro-bowl guys that always play at a high level.

neko4 03-10-2007 08:48 PM

O1 had better quality and 96 quanity

pro-bowl means nothing, but it is '96 by far.

BuffaloDraftGeek 03-10-2007 09:12 PM

96 no question.

fenikz 03-10-2007 09:17 PM

they are both ridiculous classes

yourfavestoner 03-10-2007 09:47 PM

THe 04 class is turning out nicely, as well.

JeffSamardzijaIRISH 03-10-2007 09:49 PM

The '96 class is much more consistent. They'll consistently get 100 yards on you each game, while the '01 class would break 180 yards one week, then the next go for only 30.

There really isn't a guy on the whole list that does that. It's just the nature of the position.

And rashaun woods was supposed to be the most polished of them all.. :(

Draft King 03-10-2007 10:12 PM

Easily '96, Owens and Harrison have both put up HOF stats.

princefielder28 03-10-2007 10:28 PM

01 has some pretty big names, but 96 is collectively solid

Sounds spot on

Shiver 03-10-2007 10:34 PM

How pray tell does '01 have better quality? Right now I don't think any of the '01 Receivers are slated to be Hall of Fame-rs. Where as Harrison is, Owens on numbers alone is. The '01 class also has several busts that are unmentioned. Four of the six first round WRs turned out to be busts in '01. The worst '96 produced was Eddie Kennison, who has still be a solid starter most of the time.

true dat.........

The Dynasty 03-10-2007 10:53 PM

I'd have to go with '96 but the biggest steal was Houshmanzadeh in the 7th round of that draft in 01

MaxV 03-10-2007 10:55 PM

'96 class both in terms of quality and quantity.

Acctually the '01 class turned out several busts as well as later round steals.

Check out the first 10 WRs taken in 2001 class (1-6 in the 1st round):

1. David Terrell - bust
2. Koren Robinson - bust
3. Rod Gardner - bust
4. Santana Moss - pretty good
5. Freddie Mitchell - bust
6. Reggie Wayne - very good
7. Quincy Morgan - bust
8. Chad Johnson - great
9. Robert Ferguson - decent
10. Chris Chambers - pretty good

All of these guys were taken in the first 2 rounds, and 5 of them are busts.

This 07 WR class should be pretty good. Unlikely it will touch the 96 class though.
